In common law there is a well-known rule called the Eggshell Skull rule. Say you are having an argument with your friend. The argument starts to escalate and out of frustration you grab your mobile phone, throw it in your friends general direction and he gets hit on his head. You didn't know it,… Continue reading Do You Have An Eggshell Skull?
Beauty and the Beast is probably my favourite Disney movie of all time. The story of how love and doing the right thing can overcome any adversary is a timeless story. The end of the story where Belle and the now human-again Prince are dancing in front of their friends and family is the classic… Continue reading What Ever Happened To Belle & The Beast?
A friend once told me a story about a flight she was on. She works as part of the cabin crew for an airline. There was a guy she saw on the plane who was acting strange. Sweating, slightly pale, looking blankly into the seat in front of him. It didn't seem that he was… Continue reading Sometimes To Make A Difference You Just Need To Ask “Are You OK?”

Modern technology would allow all lectures to be uploaded to YouTube and the curriculum could also be uploaded for everyone to read in a pdf format.

Few people push through to become the person they want to become. Stupid people start something while full well knowing, from the very beginning, that they're never… Continue reading Are You Stupid, Mature Or Brave?
It's always in the news: "Eating X, causes Y Disease!!". We all know that these types of statements do not prove what the cause is. Does red meat cause bowel cancer? Or is it that people who eat more red meat are also more likely to be sedentary, smoke and drink a lot more alcohol?… Continue reading Businesses Only Make Sense After The Fact

Back pain as a result of sitting down all day and even after work. Diabetes due to poor diet. I seem to… Continue reading If You Keep Doing More Stuff, You Will End Up Poorer, Less Healthy And Less Smart
Learn to say "good"no matter what and I guarantee your life will improve. Your diet isn't going as well as you hoped. Good, it means you can lift heavier weights for longer. The development of your app is going slower than you thought. Good, it means you have longer to get it just right. You… Continue reading It’s All Good
